Book teasers: False Memory, by Meli Raine

There are books that fit firmly into their assigned genre, and then there are books that fit firmly into their assigned genre. False Memory, by Meli Raine, is definitely one of the latter.

The book is tagged as a suspense, and, based on its summary and today’s teasers, it easily earns its place in the genre. I’m sure you’ll agree as soon as you take a look.

Before you do, though, stop by Meli’s rafflecopter, where she’s giving away a $25 gift card.

Okay, ready to check out False Memory?

Paper flowers

Three small, pink paper flowers

It got really cold here this week.

Well, fine, it didn’t get as cold as it could have. It didn’t hit -40 C, like it probably will later this winter. But it did drop below zero, even reaching -20 C one morning.

The cold had me craving signs of something warmer, which is probably why I was drawn to photographing these paper flowers. I don’t have any real flowers in the house right now, unfortunately. So these had to do.

Though this picture came out alright, it really isn’t the same as the real thing. I might just have to grab myself a nice bouquet this weekend.

A Q&A with Laney Wylde, author of If She Were Blind

Do you remember when I featured an excerpt from Laney Wylde’s If She Were Blind a couple of weeks ago? Well, today I’m happy to be welcoming Laney back, this time to answer a few questions for us.

She’ll be talking about everything from some of the secrets hidden in her book to the genres that she most enjoys reading. She has some great things to say–especially about If She Were Blind–and I’m sure you’ll enjoy hearing from her.

But rather than me telling you about what she wants to say, how about we just jump right into things?

Trying something new

A social media tracking spread in a bullet journal

Organizing and tracking my social media use, especially for blog and print shop promo, is something I’ve been trying to keep up with for a while now. I want to be more consistent on certain platforms, more active on others… all that good stuff. And a dedicated calendar and list of goals seem like a good way to do that.

I’ve had a hard time being tracking things regularly, though, and I think I figured out why.

See, I was tracking all of this in its own little book, instead of in my bullet journal. Which may not sound like a big deal, but I found that I didn’t want to keep up with two separate books. I just… tended to ignore the one.

So I’ve brought them together. I’ve created a new social media tracking spread in my bullet journal, in the hopes that it’ll help me get a better handle on things. It’s a fairly simple one, but I think simple is just want I need right now.

Book excerpt: Hex Marks the Spot, by Ani Gonzalez

I’ve occasionally mentioned that I don’t always know what, exactly, draws me into a book’s summary. That isn’t at all the case with Ani Gonzalez’s Hex Marks the Spot.

There were a few key phrases that locked me in as soon as I read them:

  • The main character’s hometown is the “Most Haunted in America”;
  • There’s a hellhound chihuahua; and
  • A necromancer has to save the world.

Those were, without a doubt, my favourite parts of this book’s summary. And we get a glimpse of each one of them in today’s excerpt.
